I bought several teas from SBT on their sale and plan to get more if some of my favorite flavors are still in stock. I was trying to one to see if I wanted more or if I should explore other flavors.

I made two steeps and combined them, adding enough water to make a full gallon of tea. Since this is the South and some of my peeps dig it, I added one and a half cups sugar. (This is half the amount my mother added to sweet tea per gallon.) I obeyed the instructions and never let it go beyond the three minute mark.

It is quite good, but it doesn’t taste like Mountain Dew to me. It is instead a nicely flavored black tea that is very refreshing, with hints of lime and lemon. The base is fantastic, as always.

My favorites are still Razzleberry and Earl Grey Iced, with Pink Lemonade Iced Tea coming in as a solid flavored tea to keep on hand that everyone likes. I wouldn’t mind having lots of this, but it doesn’t make fireworks for me. Great stuff, but not making me drool. The favorite two bring a tear to my eye…

Today’s work iced tea. I made this up the way I usually do, giving the bag 3 minutes in 1/4 litre of boiling water, topped up to 2 litres with cold and then into the fridge overnight. While it was in the hot water, my family insisted the smell was caramel. At first that confused me, but I can kind of see it, I guess…it’s sweet, and there’s something that reminds me very much of vanilla beans. Not caramel, though, really.

When I took my first sip, I was immediately reminded of Della Terra’s Lemon Chiffon. This has the same creamy, dessert-like vibe. I can taste both lemon and lime pretty clearly, although the creaminess is dominant. I don’t have a problem with that, though – it’s delicious! The thing that most astounds me about SBTs is their ability to mimic the effervescence of a fizzy drink, or something like sherbet, without actually being carbonated, and there is a background fizziness here.Ultimately, it comes across as a hybrid of Mountain Dew and Cream Soda for me, which is better tasting than it sounds. I’m certainly going to find this one easy to drink today – it could be a new favourite SBT!

I don’t really care for Mountain Dew, but love cream soda, so this does sound intriguing!

It really IS creamy! Goes so well with the lemon/lime flavour, too :)

Made this one as per the package directions, added 1 TBSP of white sugar.

Today I am re-hydrating. I went to the local fair yesterday, all day. I didn’t think I got too dehydrated because I drank ALOT (1/2 litre of fair rootbeer, a “freshly squeezed” from syrup lemonade, a bottle of water, a lychee soda, a gingerale, and a large coconut water, I was only able to have one cup of tea yesterday – so that was probably the problem). So you know when you get dehyrdrated, but you don’t really feel it. After I had washed off all of the dirt, the calf cramps hit!!! I feel not too awesome today. So I have been trying to rehydrate all last night and today.

I had made this one yesterday with the intention of drinking it, but it got too late by the time I got home.

I quite liked the 52 teas version of this, it was a rooibos base. There was a small window where it actually tasted like mountain dew, but for the most part it tasted like jelly beans. Well this SBT it pretty jelly bean-y. It is not bad, I am just a but disappointed as I was hoping for more mountain dew. Again it is not as strong as I would have liked, would have been better with 1 liter vs 2.

Another kickstarter iced tea down! It was OK. It had a lemon/lime taste but not strong enough to me to really like it much. There was something going on in the background that didn’t taste too good either, just thought I’d like it more I guess.

Backlog:

I enjoyed the Very Big Hill Dew Honeybush so I was interested to see how this would compare. This makes a very tasty iced tea. I think that this does work better with a honeybush base than it does with a black tea base. The lemon-lime notes shine through in the iced tea version, but, I am getting less of the bubbly, effervescent taste that Frank captures so well in his “soda” inspired teas, and I felt like that flavor came through better with the honeybush version.

But this is still a very refreshing, tasty iced tea.
